GeneCards Summary for NSMCE1 Gene
NSMCE1 (Non-SMC Element 1 Homolog (S. Cerevisiae)) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NSMCE1 Gene
Component of the SMC5-SMC6 complex, a complex involved in DNA double-strand breaks by homologous recombination. The complex may promote sister chromatid homologous recombination by recruiting the SMC1-SMC3 cohesin complex to double-strand breaks. The complex is required for telomere maintenance via recombination in ALT (alternative lengthening of telomeres) cell lines and mediates sumoylation of shelterin complex (telosome) components which is proposed to lead to shelterin complex disassembly in ALT-associated PML bodies (APBs). Has in vitro ubiquitin ligase activity in presence of NDNL2. Is involved in positive regulation of response to DNA damage stimulus.
